A few things actually: 1st the sites name starts with letters not related to anything meaningful, then when I search they also appear with different names (again the sites name is just random letters)
and the description of the message under the site is not related to anything. Also they only take credit cards and not payPal

Do a search for "purchase access 2010" and you will see

Looking to buy Access 2010 and I found it for $69.95 at Smart Shop at:

Search Results

Never seen a web site with this kind of address and I wonder if anyone knows them

I agree, I've never seen a random-looking subdomain like that. Many companies load-balance using setups like that (www1.someretailer.com, www2.someretailer.com, etc). Though with more cloud-based servers being utilized, it may be a technique on their end to add and remove servers. Who knows.

More of the question is, has anyone used Smart Shop before? I've never heard of them, but I usually stick with the standards (CDW, Amazon, Best Buy, Staples, Tiger Direct) even if it's a few dollars more.

I agree Zorfdt however he is the only one offering Access 2010 and everyone else including MS only offers Access 2013 which requires Windows 8 and I'm not ready neither want to upgrade my Vista yet

ok guys I took a chance and downloaded my software and looks legit. Access 2010 downloaded successfully, the activation was also success and my program runs ok. Actually MS Updates detected the new software (its set to auto) and installed 16 updates all related to Office 2010.

I have never heard of that website either but then I had also never heard of a website called(Softwareoutlet.com or Robobargains.com) I have never bought from (Robobargains.com) before but had bought from (Softwareoutlet.com). Sorry for the brackets I didn't want the website to pick up on the web addresses yet. Robobargains has the 2007 version of Microsoft access but it costs a great deal more however they do certify everything as being genuine Microsoft here is Robobargains web address RoboBargains| Software for Business Education Graphics and more page and Softwareoutlets address SoftwareOutlet.com Features A Huge Selection Of The Most Popular Software Titles At The Guaranteed Best Price .

A great deal of the software from each company is oem without a box but is fully functional software. Sometimes they have the software greatly reduced to make way for newer titles and sometimes they don't it just depends on the title of the software. Good luck!

Good sites hedgeclippers and I'm happy with mine so far

Sometimes its difficult to judge if a site is legit or not and then you got to take a chance
